We’re just about to sign off on 2014 and are all set for a massive 2015.

With that in mind, I’m excited about giving everyone a quick update on where we’re at with bringing 4G to amaysim.

In short, 4G will be launching amaysim-style around Easter next year. We know we’re not the first to offer 4G, but there’s a good reason why:

We want to offer cracking 4G plans with a range of options to suit the data needs of as many Aussies as possible. In true amaysim spirit, value and choice are must-haves, alongside flexibility to move between plans as people wish.

So, keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter feeds, as well as your inbox, for updates in the coming months. We can’t wait to take our amaysim plans to the next level and hope you’ll like what we’re brewing.

Also in store for next year, we’re going to be focusing more than ever on making our mobile and online support even easier to use and more helpful than it is now, so if there’s something you’d like to see, let us know.

On that note, have a safe and enjoyable break and an excellent new year. Also, thanks to our amaysim customers old and new for the massive support this year.

Here’s to 2015!

What is 4G?

- 4G, or LTE, is an evolution in mobile network technology. In areas where people can access 4G, and have a 4G-compatible handset (most new handsets are 4G), speeds can often be way faster than the already fast Optus 4G Plus network amaysim currently runs off. This means, when you’re in a 4G coverage area browsing, downloading, streaming and other online activity can happen at a cracking pace.

- To access 4G service you need a 4G-compatible handset and plan, and to be in a 4G coverage area. If you go from being in a 4G coverage area to an area where coverage is 3G, you’ll simply drop back to the Optus 4G Plus network.

- Optus, whose network we run off, plans to have 90 per cent of the Aussie population covered by 4G come April 2015.
